Painting Ornaments with Kids

Hi All,

I did these ornaments with my children. The picture above with more types and colors of ornaments we did 2019. The picture on the right are the ones we did this year in this video. It was a fun activity we could do together.


  • Wood ornaments (The ones pictured in this video these.)
  • Paint
  • Optional:
    • Ribbon
    • Rope
    • Flowers or Greenery
    • Stickers
    • Chalk Markers


Honestly I’m gonna go super simple here. There are a million ways that you could do this activity. We painted a base coat and then I let my kids go wild in decorating in 2019. This year I wanted a little more sophisticated look, so they helped with the base and then I did the embellishments.

The main thing is to have fun and make memories with them. You can also do this activity for other holidays…like Valentines’ Day coming up!

Have a great day, and keep creating!!

I am a mom of 2, wife, and am always looking to create something myself instead of buying it. I met Katy from Little Katy Bugs after becoming a mom, and we both love to craft, both have active families, and a tactful way of telling others what we truly think. I LOVE THAT!!! Art is subjective and so is crafting. So, you may not love everything we make or do, but our goal is to inspire you to create yourself and make things that you will LOVE! We do still sell some of our crafts on the site, at craft fairs, and Katy now participates in a booth store front. Check out our Facebook page for more on the booth. Sometimes we just need inspiration and camaraderie. I hope we can help provide those things to you. Sincerely Donna Beth, a Co-Blogger of
